$19,000 Donated For Cancer Support31.05.2018
As reported in April the Malvern Cancer Support Group received a large donation generated by the Malvern Lions Annual Golf Tournament.
This was a hugely successful and rewarding day for all those involved.
The donated funds will go toward assisting locals undergoing treatment following a cancer diagnosis.
The Group also committed to purchasing a lifting piece of equipment called a Sara Stedy for the Darfield Hospital from these funds.
“It was with great pleasure that I recently attended a Friends of Darfield Hospital meeting to hand over the cheque for this, to Brian Davidson and Jill Moore,” Elaine Guy, Chairperson for the Malvern Cancer Support Group said.
On Wednesday, May 23rd the Malvern Lions kindly invited the Group to attend their meeting. This was to receive a cheque for the remaining amount that the Golf Tournament generated. A fantastic $9,000 cheque was added the $10,000 previously received from the day.
“The Malvern Cancer Support Group is indebted to the Malvern Lions for this level of generosity,” Elaine said. “It will go a long way to funding our support to the community over the next few years.”
Diana Reid, a founding member of the Malvern Cancer Support Group and Jim Collier (husband of the late Janice Collier) spoke at the Lions meeting of the early days of the Group and how it has evolved over the years with the support of great organisations like the Lions.
“We wish to take this opportunity to publicly thank them for all they have done and continue to do,” concluded Elaine.
